Chamber of commerce officials in Geneva are asking residents to shop at home and support area businesses.
Chamber Director George Lindenmuth presents Geneva banker H.G. Hayes with a plaque of appreciation.
Several months-ago, Hayes spent more than $100,000 dollars refurbishing the Old Center Shopping Plaza in Geneva.
For many small business owners these are tough times.
Several Geneva business owners tell News 4 they had an unusually slow Christmas shopping season this year.
